Innovation, Uncertainty and Relational Governance


  • Anna Grandori


What is relational governance (RG)? What problems is it meant to solve? Under what conditions is it effective? The question posed by the editors of this issue is a welcome occasion for reflection on a widely used but multiple meaning concept and on its virtues and limits. In particular, I shall address the question of what properties RG precisely has in governing innovation. Answering this question leads to distinguishing four types of RG with different capacities of dealing with uncertainty.
